Alpine garden "Les Tussilages"

Description

Medicinal plants, plants from our mountains and further afield, as well as superb natural rosebushes are all there for you to see in the alpine garden. Lose yourself among the delightful scents against the spectacular backdrop of Les Diablerets and the Glacier 3000 mountains.

Located at an altitude of 1,170 m, under the Protestant chapel in the village of Les Diablerets, the Alpine Garden of Les Diablerets covers an area of approximately 2,500 m2. A small mazot, paths, a trail of streams, small waterfalls and ponds enliven the area. A fountain provides fresh glacier water. Identify the species you find in the Alpine Garden during your excursions in the mountains of the Ormonts valley or, on your return, by strolling through the garden. To help you, the Latin and common names are listed next to each plant. Plants from further afield (Greece, Turkey...) also enrich our garden. Medicinal plants have their place in the garden, as well as natural rosebushes which offer the superb spectacle of their delicate flowers. Various activities are offered during the summer months, subject to registration: - Opening party - Guided tour of the garden followed by an aperitif - Gathering and cooking with wild plants - Aromatherapy workshop, herbal tea workshop - Storytelling in the Garden - Annual race open to all The team of volunteers who maintain and enrich the Alpine Garden are available during the flowering period to answer visitors' questions at least once a week on site. The Alpine Garden of Les Diablerets was made possible by a substantial donation from the Loterie Romande.

The gardens are public and entrance is free. All the information can be found on our leaflet at the Diablerets Tourist Office.
